I needed some mojo so....

So.. I've been in a bit of scrapbook funk. I just haven't felt creative. Yesterday I scrapbooked 15 pages.. I know you think.. WOW.. that's a lot.. but they were all swap pages.. just putting pictures onto ready made pages just isn't creative. Yesterday I went on a hunt for some new challenge sites.. and found a few that piqued my interest and got me scrapping.

Here is what I came up with...


I'm entering this in the blogs that inspired me yesterday...

XOXO Challenge Blog - January Challenge - sponsored by Sweet Peach Crop Shop

What I like about this challenge site is they encourage you to scraplift one of their layouts. So.. looking through the layouts I saw a piece of paper that I've been hoarding.. you know.. how you keep your favourite waiting for just the right layout.. well one of my New Year's Resolutions is to use up my stuff! All this new stuff coming out and I want it - but I need to make room for it first!

I chose to Scrapbook layout number 6. by NEW Lipstick Chick - Khristen Foss

Th next challenge I am choosing to enter is ...

The Nerdy Victorious Scrapbookers
- Challenge #11 sponsored by Candy Shoppe Designs

On this challenge blog they provide a collage picture for inspiration. I took inspiration from the colour.. the overall grey feel on my background paper - and I accented with the red that is in there as well.

Scrapfit Blog - Workout #36 - Let's Strip sponsored by Scrapfit

I am forever saving the strips of paper - it drives my mom and sister crazy! Well I got to use up a few of them... the red (and I was lucky to find a scrap the right size to mat my photo). I also used up strips to punch the varying sizes of circles... so they may not look like strips - but they truly are!

Thanks for all the inspiration.. I think I have my mojo back!

You lifted me :) Love what you did here, that is a great photo! It's funny, I was hoarding the paper too, one of my resolutions is also to use up my stash! Great lift, thanks for playing along with us over at XOXO! Come back each month to play. There are so many layouts to be lifted, and so many talented artists :)
